From the UK to Japan; how Covid 19 is changing how we want to live
We’ve all become a lot more appreciative of our homes this year; once our private sanctuaries, lived in at the evenings and weekends, they’ve now evolved into perpetually occupied spaces in which we live, work and play.
Makeshift offices in the bedroom, and laptops at dining tables are commonplace, but pretty unsustainable in the long term. The result is homeowners who desperately want to move or redesign their space to create a home that’s right for them.
The trend is shared across the globe; our partners Sekisui House have conducted new research into how the pandemic has changed attitudes towards the home in Japan.
The results are an interesting indicator of many homeowners’ conflicting experiences of their home in recent months – and proof of why the design of our spaces is so important.
